Just bought a Pogoplug (pink version) and want to get familiarize its feature. I have look around several time but did not see any reset switch. Does it has one? If it does, where?

Yes, there is a reset switch inside of the box. It is approx. 2cm above the LED on the board. Don't forget to execute a sync command before resetting in case your plug is still running.

How do I get to the switch? I can remove the transparent plastic pretty easily but not sure how the 2 halves snap together.

I found some pictures in the pogoplugged forum (http://www.pogoplugged.com/forum/thread ... al+console). You should use a screwdriver the way it is shown in one the pictures. Proceed the same way at the top and bottom of the case. It worked very well with my Pogoplug.

Just throwing the fact that this just reboots the plug out there, and not resets it to factory defaults. Had that question a lot.

restart the pogoplug is what I need. I have couple of Kingston USB sticks that don't cold start well. Rather than keep cycle the power, I want to hit the reset switch to give it a 2nd chance.

UPDATE: Found the switch. Will decide if I want to drill a hole in front to access it or solder another switch to it.
Thanks.

In case anyone want to drill a hole to access the reset switch, it is located about 0.75" above the top of the indicator light and 1.24" from the right side of the case when looking from the front.

The power cable has been disconnected from the power converter board to have a clearer look of the swtich.
